A basic model for evaluating writing will be presented, which includes the following parts: unity, support, coherence (organization/flow of thought), and sentence skills (grammar/ structure). Steps in the writing process cover pre-writing, writing a first draft, revising, and proofreading/editing; these steps will act as another framework for effective writing. With these structures in place, participants will assess their own writing needs, including grammar; will review rules; and will strengthen their own specific writing skills.
The first group will start on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, and will meet every Tuesday for seven sessions, through October 23, 2012. The time is from 2:00PM to 3:30PM, in Room 0119 Francis Scott Key Building. To get the most benefit from the program, hopefully, you can attend all the sessions.
Time: 2:00 – 3:30PM (1 and1/2 hours)
Location: Room 0119 in
Francis Scott Key Hall
